You Have The IT Department You Deserve

Having worked with dozens of IT departments at corporations around the world, I am constantly struck by how often I will speak to a CEO or a CFO to whom the chief information officer reports, and find that they are frustrated with the performance of the IT leader and his or her team.  What comes next is often a litany of complaints, the substance of which differs depending on the company, the CIO, and the CEO or CFO. There are some common themes however:
The CIO does not think strategically, and does not engage the rest of the organization in a strategic manner
The IT leader is not cutting costs of IT as much as he or she should
There are concerns about the security stance of the enterprise
There is a perception that outsourced partners would be better suited to run most of what IT currently does
